  1. Hello IMT:
    I’m writing a story about developers’ interest in Sherman Oaks and how residents and the neighborhood are responding to them. One of the projects I will be including is IMT’s proposed redevelopment of the Sunkist building. I’d like to get some comments from the company regarding if it plans to address residents’ concerns about traffic and other issues. My deadline is Friday. If someone could pls. reach out to me, I would appreciate it, so I can include responses from the company in the story.
